LAX Offering Restrooms For Dogs
LAX is now offering restrooms for dogs. The international airport recently added five gated relief stations featuring water bowls and fire hydrant replicas.
The doggie restrooms were added in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Larry Rolon, the airport's coordinator for disabled services, said that the restrooms were implemented in order "to better assist travelers with disabilities who are accompanied by guide dogs or other assistance animals."
The enclosures feature a patch of grass, a replica hydrant, a sand trap, and bags for disposing of solid waste.
Two million pets and others animals fly each year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
